So it finally happened.
Yesterday I had an amazing workout! It was about time! After reviewing my calendar, I realized I took it pretty easy this last week. 3 rest days and one day of just yoga! I am not upset by any means. In fact, I am ecstatic! I feel great!
Last year if you had told me I would take 3 days off working out in one week I would have freaked out! But finally I have my priorities straight. Working out takes second place to LIVING and spending time with others.
Because if you think about it, we should workout to live, not live to workout.
Instead of heading to the gym, I walked around the mall with my mom, spent the day swimming in the ocean, and got my zen on with some downward dog. Hitting the gym hard and staying in shape allows me to do activities like this with tons of energy and peace.
By Monday morning I was ready and raring to workout hard. Why? Because my family had an hour to spare before heading to the beach for lunch and ice cream. So yeah, I also workout to eat ice cream. Because eating ice cream is one of my favorite parts of life.
Now let’s get to the photos!
We had a late lunch at Dockside Dave’s on St. Pete Beach with Morgan, David, my parents, and my grandma. We went there specifically for their famous blackened grouper sandwich.
It was well worth the Labor Day traffic.
Then I somehow convinced everybody to get ice cream at Twistee Treat, an icon of St. Pete Beach.
Sometimes you got to roll with the classics. Vanilla soft serve with rainbow sprinkles.
What a perfect ending to an amazing summer in Florida. Sunshine, family time, and ice cream.
